New East Village pocket park to include interactive art

Small community space will feature work by Christopher Konecki and an installation by RAD Lab

An empty lot at the corner of 13th Avenue and J Street in the East Village has been transformed into a new "pocket park"—basically, a park that fits neatly into a small urban space—featuring public art and interactive installations. The park's public grand opening kicks off at 11 a.m. Sunday, June 8.

The small plot of land is privately owned by HP Investors, which provided financial support to develop the park. The Downtown San Diego Partnership enlisted the help of the East Village Association and the design expertise of local architectural firm RAD Lab to design the space, which sits adjacent to the Mission Café.

The park includes art by Christopher Konecki (whose work's been featured on CityBeat's cover) and RAD Lab's large, interactive word-search game installation.

The project is part of the Downtown San Diego Partnership's "tactical urbanism" events, which seek to demonstrate how small, quick urban interventions can make a big impact on communities.
